    What colors do oegbs come in? I recently hatched a pullet and she turned out an odd color. She's black with gold barring I guess you would say. Her father is a bb red and I recently bought 2 black oegb hens and one of them has to be her mother but I don't know which one. I've hatched out oegbs before but jever seen this color.

    That is a common result from a cross of a duckwing variety over a black, the stippling you see will go away in the final feathers and the bird will look very similar to a brown red.
